Port Forwarding apparently impossible...


Recommended Posts

Ok I've been working on this for a while, and have pretty much ran out of ideas.

-I have Qwest DSL (3 Gbps, supposedly)

-Current computer is set up on a static IP (

-Gigabit Ethernet using Netgear GS605 switch

-Modem is an Actiontec GT701R

-Router is a Netgear WGR614v6

-Windows Firewall

I have set both the modem and the router to forward several different ports to my IP and changed Utorrent's port to match. I've also created an exception in Windows Firewall for each port I tested. Disabling the firewall doesn't fix it. I have checked and rechecked my settings without any errors found.

I also downloaded and ran Nmap's port scanner, and each time I ran it it only found 3 open ports (one being 80 and the other two being different each time).

I suppose it's possible that Qwest has just blocked all incoming ports except for the web browser, but I sincerely hope that's not the case... If so, they're going to get an earfull. Any ideas?
